Watercolor's vivid colors and fresh brush strokes make it the most exciting way to paint. You'll learn to paint by picking up a brush and painting-not by reading about a bunch of confusing theories. You'll find out which tools you should buy to get off to a good, affordable start, when, what and even where to paint, plus explanations of terms and useful tricks. Exercises help you learn the ins and outs of putting paint on paper. Includes a dozen demonstrations of how paintings come together from start to finish. By Cathy Johnson. 121 pages.
